Stone's Brother In Drug Overdose
Singer Joss Stone is reportedly devastated after brother Daniel Skillin was hospitalised following a heroin overdose. Images from a video showing Skillin injecting himself with drugs in a squalid bedsit have been published in British newspaper The Sun today (10MAR06) - just days after he told the publication, "I am off drugs." The paper reports emergency services were called to the 27-year-old's Kent, England home after he collapsed and stopped breathing. A friend says, "Joss will be devastated. She desperately wants to believe him when he tells her he's clean but he keeps pulling the wool over her eyes." Former armed robber Skillin admits he had a relapse, saying, "This will destroy my family. I feel guilty but that won't change what has happened."
